In Mumbai, it is nearly impossible to drive anywhere. The use of huge public vehicles benefits the environment and uses less fuel. Nonetheless, many metro train commuters rely on auto-rickshaws for connectivity in the final stretch. In such cases, it is convenient to cycle and Mumbai Metro has a parking spot for it too! This Twitter user shares a pic of a boy sitting with his cycle in the metro.

Netizens’ Reaction To This Tweet

Netizens are applauding the Mumbai Metro for offering comfortable travel. One of the users wrote: “Carrying a cycle is at least free in the metro, but using a local railway would cost you about ₹200. By introducing a separate carriage for cyclists, the local train should promote cycling and he believes it would inspire a lot of people.”

Another user wrote: “Extremely assured and conscious of the ease and effectiveness. We only hope that he cycles without being bothered or scared by autos, cars, or heavy vehicles as he travels safely to his destination and returns and it is important to respect cyclists.”

With autos, bikes and cars, the number of cyclists is reducing day by day. By introducing a parking spot for bicycles in the metro, the authorities have assured everyone that using it won’t be an inconvenience.
